Napthens once again confirmed as leading M&A legal adviser in north west

Napthens has started 2024 strongly after being confirmed as one of the top UK’s legal advisers on mergers and acquisitions (M&A) in the north west region during the first quarter of the year by Experian Market IQ.

It follows on from the firm topping the rankings in 2023, with the corporate team supporting the completion of an impressive 42 deals in the region, including acting for the shareholders of Star Tissue on the sale to German Buyer WEPA Professional and acting for Standard Fuel Oils on its acquisition of River Marine Fuels.

Keith Melling, partner and head of corporate, said: “Throughout 2023 the corporate team was consistently ranked as one of the most active advisers in the north west, eventually topping the annual rankings.

“This news continues the trend of Napthens being at the forefront of M&A in our region, consistently advising on some of the region’s most noteworthy transactions.

“It re-enforces Napthens’ reputation as a leading north west commercial law firm.

“We’re already seeing high levels of transactional activity this year and, with a more positive outlook for the economy and inflationary pressures easing, we hope to see that trend continue through 2024.

“The corporate team continues to grow and with an office move in Liverpool on the horizon.
